Thanksgiving 2011: Unforgiven and forgotten

By Kylynn Pelkey |

I spent thanksgiving this year at an Alzheimer’s home. My Grandmother’s sister, Sandie, was transferred into the home about two months ago. The transition has been hard on her family.

Sometimes she doesn’t remember her son, Steven Jr., who pushed to put her in a home. Once, she didn’t remember her husband Steve.

“Why is that man in my room? Who is that man?” she asked the nurse.
